Shop ‘Til You Drop

It’s official.  I have purchased too many things in the past week.  When life changes around me..I de-stress one of two ways 1. I bake and 2. I shop. And that’s exactly what I did…

oh goodness.

Let me clarify: this was not a one stop shop…these items were purchased over a 2 week period.  But still.  Yikes. At least I got great deals? I have lots of showers and weddings to go to this year, that’s my reasoning for the dresses lately.  Also, I love all of the bold colors this season!  I’m typically a black, grey and white girl and I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone and look great at the same time 😉

Oh and I baked more cookies.  But more on that tomorrow..


I took the day off again and slept a solid 10 hours last night, still felt like crapola (that’s not a swear word right? I’ve been doing so good!)  when I woke up so I rolled over and got some more shut eye.  I eventually got up and managed to get myself to the gym and complete a chest and triceps workout.  Same as last week, just a few increases in weight.  Yay me! Pushups, Incline Dumbbell Press, Flat Bench Flyes, Decline Flyes, Bench Dips, Skullcrushers, Dumbbell Triceps Kickbacks, Tricep Extensions, Cable One Arm Triceps Extension.  Phew, that was a mouthful!  All 3 sets of 10 reps, varying weights.  This workout was brought to you by the coughing girl at the gym, sorry everyone who was there at the same time.  I was obnoxious I know, but I needed to do some sort of physical activity.  I should probably mention that walking on the tredmill for 10 minutes just about wiped me out.. and that was my warmup.  Yikes!

After a nice hot shower, I joined Brit (as seen on the far right) to a slow paced trip to the mall.  Stores I was successful in, Forever 21, H&M, and Aerie (first time ever in this store, I discovered this and all of my dreams have been answered, I am in love!)  Here is my request for everyone out there.  If I mention anything about shopping, politely remind me that put away that debit card and go for a run.  Shopping, running to the store, quick errands, online browsing, ANYTHING = NO KATE DO NOT DO IT.  Thank you in advanced.  Sometimes I am sneaky, do not let me fool you, I will be tempted.  Maybe I should make myself clean on my closets… donate ‘haven’t warn in since last year’ clothes… or maybe to make room for more.  I’m kidding! Kind of…


Question of the Day: Where are your favorite places to (clothes) shop?  For clothes I tend to gravitate towards Target, Kohls, Forever 21, TJ Maxx, and H&M …
